Nitrogen UHP

Nitrogen UHP

Nearly¬†80% of the Earth’s atmosphere¬†consists of nitrogen. This colorless, odorless gas is available in many purity levels for various industrial applications. Ultra-high purity (UHP) is 99.999% pure and contains negligible impurities. The maximum permissible oxygen content is two parts per million by volume, and the hydrocarbon total cannot exceed 0.5 ppmbv.¬†

If you’re looking for UHP nitrogen gas for your business, look no further than the nearest Meritus Gas Partners supplier. You’ll get a high-quality product at a competitive price and receive exceptional service. Our distributors also carry an assortment of equipment to ensure safe and appropriate usage, making them your one-stop shop for all your gas-related needs.¬†

UHP Nitrogen Cost and Availability

UHP nitrogen gas is available in steel or aluminum cylinders. The cost can vary depending on the cylinder size or quantity, and we offer several options for sale.  

Uses and Applications for UHP Nitrogen

Examples of the various applications of ultra-high purity nitrogen include:

Contamination prevention is crucial in pharmaceutical manufacturing. High- to ultra-high-purity nitrogen is a primary substance for blanketing storage tanks, receptacles and other equipment used during drug manufacturing because it is noncombustible and inert. The gas can also maintain ingredient freshness and prevent deterioration during packaging.

Many electronics and semiconductor manufacturing applications require nitrogen gas within the 99.99%-to-99.999%-purity range. This higher grade ensures better results when performing essential tasks like reworking, soldering and fabricating. The material’s inert nature is also critical for maintaining stability throughout the process.

Nitrogen gas with ultra-high purity provides reliable heat treatment for laser cutting processes. It significantly reduces the likelihood of oxidation on the cut metal surface. Nitrogen also displaces oxygen on the surface, reducing the preparation time before welding.

Inductively coupled plasma spectrometry is an analytical technique that detects and measures elements when analyzing samples. Nitrogen gas passes through the middle of the plasma to create an adjacent channel warmer than the chemical flame.

UHP Nitrogen Safety

Prolonged exposure to or inhaling large amounts of hydrogen gas can be dangerous and potentially deadly. Hydrogen can displace oxygen in the surrounding atmosphere, which may lead to suffocation. Wear Occupational Safety and Health Administration-approved breathing equipment with a full facepiece when working with nitrogen in poorly ventilated areas. 

Store nitrogen cylinders upright in a cool, dry environment away from other chemicals or potentially hazardous materials. The temperature in the designated storage area should never exceed 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
